Our top skincare products for cool relief this winter

The cold weather means it’s time to update our beauty routines. Here are our top skincare products for winter to keep your skin hydrated and glowing this season.

As the temperature drops and the cold winds pick up, it’s not just winter coats and boots that we have to stock up on. With the cool winter air, there also comes a need to refresh our skincare routines.

The reason being is that exposure to cold wind and indoor heaters can really take a toll on our skin’s natural moisture balance. When we are around these low-humidity environments, it draws the moisture away from our skin including the natural oils that help keep it protected and healthy. Not only does this leave skin feeling dry and lacklustre but the breakdown of our skin’s natural barrier function leaves it vulnerable to sensitivity, redness, and irritation. 

To combat this, it’s important to adopt a winter skincare routine that will strengthen your skin’s outermost layer. Our tip is to avoid harsh cleansers that contain sulfates and instead look for products that contain peptides, ceramides that reinforce the skin’s moisture barrier. Another ingredient to look for is vitamin C which will help protect the skin from environmental aggressors and repair existing cellular damage. This will help your skin feel healthy and hydrated, while also giving it that smooth, soft and dewy look.

When it comes to our top skincare products for winter, we’re drawn towards brightening serums and facial moisturisers that restore the skin’s clarity and luminosity. Each of these products works towards protecting the skin from external factors and free radicals, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boosting hydration, and achieving a brighter more radiant complexion. 

You know what they say… be good to your skin, you’ll wear it for the rest of your life.
